The 5 blade stayed hooked up when trimmed in all the way, once I trimmed it 2 or 3 clicks out it would slip on the bounce. but all in or one click out it was fine. sunday it was to windy too do prop swaps but I'll bring it. wonder if ICE would let me try his lower just to see if it works and I need to buy one for 4grand.

One you can feel the drive system and engine being the cause and effect to the condition. The other those systems are steady and the boat condition is apparent.

I then went up in HP to 750 and running a 28 4 blade it still porpused like a SOB after 42-4300 r's. SO, i changed drives to an XR upper and 2" IMCO shortie lower w/ nosecone and all porpusing went away, maid range to wot. Still looking for a little more bow lift prop and will hopefully be able to get it right next spring. Leaving r's on the table with a 28 4 blade and blowing out a 26 4 blade but bringing the X up to 5 1/2" made all the difference in the world! Doesnt stay as hooked up in the rougher chop like the deep X did but all around a major improvement! Hopefully i can help more if you guys need any other info!! Let me know and good luck Art! Cheers
Thank you for the info

Could you post picture of your drive full negative trim???

This boat regardless of drive trim setting will not stop porpoising.
He can stop it by full tabs down. Which creates three rooster tails and picks the stern up so high boat bow steers radically

I would if I could but boat is at mechanics shop for the winter a couple hours away Adding the 2" shortie with the standard Bravo application changed the way the boat ran entirely and completely eliminated my porpus issue. I will try and find some pics if i can. I know my nosecose sits about an inch "under" meaning an inch into the transom and about in inch below the V with not much negative, maybe a little less that what your showing. Hard to describe w/o a pic.

I am having a difficult time describing the difference. One you can feel the the drive system lifts the boat (bow or stern) until is doesn't have enough bite and falls back.
The other condition is where you can feel the drive system has good bite (low % slip) and the bottom is stuck to the surface and breaking free or is driving up and falling off the running surface.
